For the purposes of this website, I'm a guy who enjoys messing around with wood.
I did a pretty basic 'professional' training course in carpentry and joinery back in the 1960s but soon sought other ways of earning a living. By this time, people who could construct windows and doors from scratch with hand tools were not what the industry needed. I was really a frustrated cabinetmaker but they hadn't taught me that skillset - so I fell between two stools.
So I moved on to do other, completely unrelated things and came back to this many years later when I had the time and resources to do what I really love to do with wood.
